The Road To Frosty Hollow by R.J. Scott & Meredith Russell 4*
BLURB: Nick and Cameron face old demons, and find new love, on a Christmas road trip.
Former Marine Nick Sheridan is at a crossroads. With his entire life ahead of him he struggles to find direction and his place in the world. Car sharing to get home for his sister’s Christmas wedding seems like a good idea at first. Spending the time with the man he kissed and left years before, maybe not so much.
Cameron Bennett lost most of his teenage years to cancer and he now lives every day to the fullest. He decides to drive from Seattle to Vermont for his best friend’s wedding and capture moments of it on film. He hadn’t planned on car sharing with the man who kissed him ten years ago, but somehow he ends up with a brooding Nick by his side.
Along the way, the men learn that sometimes life plans mean nothing in the grand scheme of things. Love can be found in the most unexpected of ways, and facing your demons head on is sometimes the only way to live.
My Review: I was given an ARC for reviewing purposes. I took a while to get around to reading this one but I wish I'd read it earlier as I liked this story a lot. Even though I don't always like 'second chances' stories this one was well written, though without to much emphasis on the first chance, but plenty of interaction between the two guys. I personally think it was the sight-seeing road trip that made this book however as a fair portion of the book was about that and the internal thoughts of both guys. If you like road trip stories and love ending a book on a high note then this one is for you because this book does leave you with a warm and happy feeling.
